Early Ford V-8 Club Forum

FORUM RULES: Users agree to these Rules when using Forum.

The site administrator reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of the user agreement without prior notice to the user. It is the responsibility of the user to regularly review the terms of this agreement.

The user agrees to the following terms:

  1. All information that you provide to us for your membership is correct.
  2. You will not use your membership to spam, harrass, or exploit other members in any way.
  3. Vulgar, Abusive, Racist and Sexist Language will not be tolerated.
  4. Commercial-type sales postings will not be allowed.
  5. No mass posting or flooding of the boards is allowed.
  6. No Advertising of parts or cars; no Ebay or business/commercial ads (please use the "Classified" for ads Wanted or For Sale).
  7. VIEWING MULTIPLE TOPICS ON SCREEN: You can choose to see more than 10 Topics at a time ... Log In and choose "Preferences" from the top bar on the Forum page. Scroll down and Change the "Default Topics Returned" parameter to 25 or 50, and save the changes. Since this setting is stored in your browser 'cookies' (if enabled), it seems to use that stored value even if you are not logged in. So, if you use a PC that you haven't logged into the forum from, the setting still seem to remain at the default.
  8. EXTERNAL PHOTO LINKS ON FORUM: You can still use external photo links in your posts on the new forum. They follow the rules of any link in that they have to have the URL link qualified down to the full image file name (example: .jpg). The links will open in a new browser window, the same as an uploaded image attached to a post. Since an image attachment to any post does not display inline with the post, the results are the same. You can use multiple external links within a post. This link is from photos on a site from Don Clink's 'Deuce@75' albums:

    http://donclink.com/deuce_75_1/images/dscn2950.jpg

    Using links from photo sites such as Photobucket can help in "size" issue with uploaded attachment files. For best viewing in web browsers, photos should be around the 800x600 pixel range, and probably not more than 1024x768. Most cameras today store HUGE jpg image files, as the default settings are in the 7, 8, 10, and 12Mb image sizes. The image files that are then attached are very large, and the browser can't display the full image size without using the scroll bars. Use the re-sizing functions of your photo editing software to reduce the image to 800x600, which reduces the file sixe and the image load time in the browser. Don uses Google's free Picassa3 software, which is an excellent photo management product. All of the photo albums of the Deuce, Grand National, and Auburn that are links on the NORG site were built using Picassa's web creation functions. And it's free? (THANKS to Don Clink for the info!)
  9. HOW DO I SHOW MY EMAIL ADDRESS ALONG WITH MY USERNAME? You can LogIn on the Forum, and select PREFERENCES. On this page Members can add optional information such as their City,State, Country; Occupation; Hobbies: list a Homepage; list AOL Instant Messanger Handle; Signature; "Make Email Address viewable to others;" and even change the number of Default Topics shown on a page. WHEN others click on your profile, they will see this information.

Hi Mike
I am the guy that sent you the wood pattern for the bottom seat on the '40 convertible.
I posed the question regarding the road lamp switch knob color to Gary Mallast, '38-'39 Ford technical adviser. He went to the Research Center of The Henry Ford Museum to research this question. He checked the Chassis Parts List, Drawings, and Engineering Releases, Feb. 20, May1, and Oct.1, 1940. He advised that only one drawing was for a 91A-15224 switch. The knob was made from M-5660-C Cellouse Acetate Plastic. He stated that he could not find any sign of an O1A-15224 switch. He further stated that it would have been logical to have put it on the same drawing, since the only change would have been the knob color. He said that it appears that the Butterscotch knob would be correct for 1940, contrary to page 2-11 of The 1940 Ford Book. This file was forwaeded to Windle, Brownlee.

Hey, thank you again for teaching me about the seat! I have the pattern made and have learned something in the process.
Now, in regard to the knob color... Gary Mallast is one heck of a good researcher. I have little doubt that what he found is what exists in the archives.
The problem (confusion) remains in the fact that I have had a few sets of road lamps (1940) that have had a maroon knob (switch) as part of the kit. How can we explain that?
I am of the opinion that because the absolute proof was not found (at this time) does not mean something didn't happen.
Believe me, I am a purist and want the best, most complete and authoritative (read: CORRECT) information to be disseminated. I am certain you can understand what I (we) are up against!

Hi Mike,
I have a 40 electric clock that looks almost NOS. If you would like pictures of it for the new book I can supply you with as many and whatever angles you wish.
I am currently finishing up my 40 Del wagon, also in progress is a 40 Convert and 40 V-8 coupe and 40 COE truck.

For the new book, it would be helpful to show correct routing of the gas line where it comes up by the firewall and good detailed pictures of the whole engine area.

Looking forward to an updated 40 book, thanks.

Mike Dermond, Puget Sound Regional Group

Good morning Mike,
Thanks for the offer on the clock. I too have one and had thought of including a picture of it.
I will be limited in the number of pictures I will be allowed to have published but will certainly attempt to include those you desire.
The fuel line routing is an oft asked question and in my opinion should be addressed in detail.
Thanks again for your suggestions.
Mike

Only as far as areas that are identical to passenger cars (chassis, engine)...

Mike,
Will there be any info in the new book on pickup trucks? Not much is written on trucks. Just a thought.

Trucks will only be covered in areas that are identical to the passenger cars. Examples: engines, chassis.
I do not possess the knowledge to even attempt to describe them (trucks) in any fairness to our members.
Sorry...
